Woman Says Waka Flocka Flame Ended Her Marriage, Saved Her Life
I've heard many people use the phrase "life-changing experience" when it comes to describing concerts they've attended. I myself have had the chance to see performances that have made a lasting impact, but nothing like the woman who says Waka Flocka Flame ended her marriage and saved her life.
The 52-year-old female (who isn't named in her blog entry) writes about how seeing Waka Flocka Flame in concert was the nail in the coffin of her marriage. She explains that in an attempt to learn more about Twitter, she found that musicians were doing a better job at social media promotion than social media experts, Waka being one of them.
She blogged about the Bricksquad rapper, who retweeted her post, and followed her "graciously" when she asked. The retweets and follow led to more followers for her and more cred. She began to blog about other rap artists as well, which soon turned into a new career.
I got back in touch with my musical roots and interests, and began expanding my follows to include more rap and hip hop artists than social media experts. Through this period, I began blogging reviews of upcoming artists. I was able to meet (via Twitter) some amazing artists and talents, and not just rap musicians but actors, writers, country and rock artists…a truly awesome mix of talent and celebrity.
Her relationship at home wasn't peachy keen, and a lot of the "good times" in her marriage had already come and gone. For the most part, her and her ex-husband had just become a couple that simply existed, in a civil and polite manner.
And then Waka Flocka came to town.
Her husband never liked the idea of her interest in rap music or rap artists. Her husband said he couldn't prevent her from going to see Waka, but he did NOT want her to go. Things got worse when she showed no signs of staying behind at home. He even suggested that due to her fascination with Waka, if he asked, she might "go out clubbing with him and end up doing something she'd forget."
I feel fairly attractive. I’m 53 now (52 at the time of the concert) and I try to keep myself presentable. I don’t have as many lines and wrinkles as some women my age, and I’ve been told I look much younger than my true age. But…as attractive as I may or may not be, I know as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow that Waka and I were not destined to go clubbing together. And, nice thing to say to your wife.
Needless to say, his hypothetical scenario only fueled her desire to attend the show, and attend the show she did. She rolled solo to the concert, and it was AMAZING! She even got backstage, and had the chance to meet, and snap a photo with Waka. He even remembered her from their Twitter exchange.
Going to see Waka Flocka Flame in concert was the final nail in the coffin of my marriage.
The decision to go to the show allowed her to make the decision to break from her marriage, and life her life to the fullest. No longer would she be held back by an "immature man" who "didn't appreciate" her or the "interesting turns" her life may take. She's been divorced a few months now, and couldn't be happier.
The moral of this story? Don’t EVER let anyone else keep you from your bliss, no matter what that may be. If someone truly loves you, they will come along for the adventure. Otherwise, get the heck out and live your life to the fullest. Believe me, you’ll sleep better at night and have a song in your heart.
Of course, her song will always be a Waka Flocka club banger :)
